The reviews are in….

Thank you loyal patrons and first-time opera-goers, for your overwhelming response to our 2010-2011 season opener, La bohème! We love to hear about your experiences. Thank you for sharing them with us. Here are some of our favorites!

“I am not going to read another review until after I have seen a performance in the future, as the AJC reviewer must not have seen the same production I did! I thoroughly enjoyed the singers, their acting, the chorus, the orchestra, the staging–the whole afternoon was a joy to behold. May your other endeavors be as entertaining and enjoyable and a pleasure to the ear and the eye. My wish is for your continued success. Better yet, I don’t think I will read any more reviews!”

“We had never seen La bohème before. It was a great production- the music, singing, sets etc. La bohème ranks with the best opera we have seen, which includes Tosca at La Scala and many at the N.Y. Metropolitan.”

“We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the Sunday matinee of La bohème, which happens to be the very first opera I’d seen many years ago at The Met. The performers were fantastic, the sets magnificent, the music splendid. We had invited another couple to join us. They had moved to this area from NYC several years ago, and had enjoyed front row center seats at The Met for many years. He said the performance was “world class,” and he’s much more experienced than I. Congratulations to all… glad we are season subscribers!”

“The Sunday matinee performance was the second Atlanta Opera production my wife and I have attended since moving to Smyrna from Boston late last year. We saw and thoroughly enjoyed Aida in the Spring and subsequently purchased season tickets. La bohème was every bit as good, and we are eagerly looking forward to the Gershwin and Mozart productions that will be coming up in 2011”

“Magnifique…….the only word I can use to describe it! This opera is more than 100 years old, yet it is just as beautiful as if it were the first time I had seen it. I can only put myself into the seat of those who first heard this magnificent piece of music. My compliments to the cast, chorus and supernumeraries. You have all put Atlanta onto the Opera Map.”

“We are new to the greater Atlanta area and attended with 5 of our neighbors. Sensational is the best I can come up with! The [orchestra], staging, preformers, quality, and “awe factor” all exceeded expectations. When the second act closed and everyone froze in action, it looked like a famous painting. It was so exquisite.”
